7th – 8th October 2021 – Marseille


SCS continues its cooperation with scientific experts in Microelectronics with the organisation of a 2nd Innovation Micro Day gathering industry and academia on “Low power Architecture” & “Microcontroller with embedded AI”.

For this second edition,  the scientific day will welcome guest speakers from academia and industry. It will target multiple innovations contributing to European industry competitiveness. Contributions related to the latest advances on methodologies and technologies for the design, evaluation, and optimization of low power hardware architecture (reliable and safe) will be presented.
Full program will be available on website later on.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to :

  • Approaches for energy efficiency
  • Energy Management  (collecting, charging, harvesting)
  • Low voltage
  • Architecture design/conception
  • Radiofrequency (Performance Vs Power consumption)
  • Computing (embedded Vs Cloud or edge)
  • Novel architecture designs of hardware accelerators



  1. Showcase of advanced technologies, recent achievements on main topic
  2. Networking and exchanges between local experts (startups, scientifics..) and Keynotes & European guests



80 participants
Local Industry (STMicroelectronics, NXP, Thales…) and academia experts (CEA, CNRS, CHREA, IM2NP…), executives from different domains (automotive, health, transport, etc…), startups offering innovative technologies & representatives from Institution (Region Sud, Ministers, etc….)
